You get privacy but a warm welcome. In nearby Ashover - under 2 miles away - there are great pubs and ales. You can walk there from the cottage. There is lots of room for two people but two couples could stay here as well - both rooms have ensuites. A busy bird feeder is just outside. We've seen everything from nuthatches to goldfinches coming and going. I couldn't fault this lovely place and will definitely be back.
